Laka Glacier Trek 03 Nights / 04 Days Tour
Dharamshala - Bhagsu - Triund - Laka
Trekking Grade :
The latitudinal location of Dharamsala has an advantage that it lies in a very close proximity to snowline. During summer time after walking for only 13 kms you reach the snowline at Laka Glacier. This is one of the most popular and beautiful trek that you can do in short duration. During pre-monsoon period(March to June) the glacier is full of snow but from July onwards the glacier starts to melt and recede back and during post monsoon period there is no snow at the glacier and you only see the moraine(the remanants of Glacier).
The trek will start from McLeodganj, Himachal Pradesh and will reach Laka Glacier via Triund. The trek will take you through the deodar forest to a ridge called Triund that will reveal the scenic beauty of Dhauladhar range, and walking towards the (laka got) you will be able to see one of the most beautiful mountain pass known as Indrahar pass calmly waiting on the height of 4,342 meters. After spending a chilling night in camp and sleeping bag, next morning will take you to the laka Glacier, as it is one place to play with high altitude snow safely and see the crystal ice formations on the mountain top.
